    Biography: 
     This is my fourth year at NA, but my first at Hosack! I spent my first 3 years at McKnight (and traveling to Bradford Woods once a week!). I have been lucky enough to work in libraries with students at all levels (I student taught at Jefferson Middle School in Mt. Lebanon and I was a long term substitute in the library at Hopewell High School). I have taught dance and baton twirling for over 10 years and I am currently the Majorette Coach for Montour High School's Varsity Marching Band. 
     
    I love stories of all kinds so I am constantly reading, watching movies and tv shows, and listening to audiobooks. Follow what elementary books I'm reading on our instagram @hosacklibrary (Ms. M Reads highlight) or check out my personal Goodreads page where I keep track of everything I read (adult fiction/nonfiction, biographies, YA novels, graphic novels, comic books, middle grade fiction, picture books, etc.).
